My 11 year old son is a very good boy. Yes, he pouts here and there and sometimes doesn't stop playinig when I ask him to, so I have to tell him 4 more times. But he is a kind-hearted, caring boy. He helps me all around the house. He is as sweet as ever to his younger siblings. Just a good boy.
So the other day, we are in the car and we get stuck in traffic. He says, "Gosh, there's too much F****** traffic." I turned to him and asked him if he cussed. He said yes. I said, well just don't do it again. He said okay. I wasn't even really upset. I just want him to learn that he will not cuss in front of adults. I know he will do it around his friends alot when he's older and there's nothing I can do to control that because I won't be with him 24/7, while he's at school and sport practice. My BIL is a little old fashioned and when I told him about this he said, "he's a man, he will cuss."
What do you think?
